The reentry permit kept your GC alive. It has no meaning whatsoever for naturalization.

Your residence has been broken by the trip abroad of over 180 days, unless you can show to the satisfaction of the examiner that residency was not disrupted. THings like having kept a home in the US, not having accepted employment abroad, etc. help.

If in doubt, discuss your situation with a good immigration lawyer.
